Fedora :: How To Improve Firefox Rendering Speed

Jan 25, 2010

improve rendering speed in Fedora? I notice it's very, very slow compared to Firefox on Windows, and Safari on Mac. I know my hardware is quite old, but it should behave similar to Windows...

Fedora :: Font Rendering Bad Only In Firefox

Jun 10, 2010

I'm running Fedora 13 x86_64 on a Dell Precision Workstation with a Dell Flatscreen Monitor. My fonts render well everywhere, using Dejavu fonts, but in Firefox and Epiphany they have these terrible yellow outlines and jagged edges.Has anyone else seen this? I've only noticed it recently (since the upgrade to Fedora 13), but it also happens on a Fedora 12 machine at home.

Ubuntu :: Rendering Of Characters In Firefox?

Jan 29, 2011

I have a weird issue in Firefox on Ubuntu 10.10, and sadly it's a periodic mistake that I don't know how to initiate... Sometime in firefox some of the characters seems not fully rendered, and as I recall it can also happen in menu fonts sometimes. In the attached screen-shot you can see that it's the a character that has the problem - but only for one font type or? But I have seen this with most characters I think - and as stated this happens randomly.For instance right now I looked again in the tab in firefox where I just 5 minutes ago did the screen-shot and now all characters are correct?? I have tried to reload or even restart firefox when it occurs, but this is now guaranty for a solution... When it happens it makes many homepages unreadable

Ubuntu :: Inconsistent Font Rendering In Firefox?

Sep 17, 2010

able to find anything on this particular issue. The problem I'm having is that the contrast ratio of text in firefox seems very inconsistent. For example: if I'm reading an article on NYtimes, from one paragraph to the next it looks like some sentences are in bold-face and others are not. If I refresh the page, it'll be different areas that are or aren't bf. Sometimes they even change (getting darker or lighter) as I'm sitting there reading. I tried to take a screenshot but unfortunately the text all becomes uniform as soon as I hit prt-scr so the image doesn't show the effect.

Another example is viewing my personal favorite forum where threads that I haven't read are in bf as opposed to those I have read which are normal. The problem is that when I do a mouse-over of the bf threads the font rendering becomes more greyed out. It's still bold-face, just not as dark.

A final example is in text-entry boxes. As I'm typing this right now the line I'm on looks normal but the paragraph above seems to go from regular to bold-face from one line to the next. The paragraph above that looks entirely bold-face...

It did occur to me that this could be a monitor issue or even a vid-card issue. But it's definitely not monitor because I can scroll the whole screen and the variation moves with the text... And it's not vid-card because I installed Chrome as a check and it doesn't have the same problem. None of the above symptoms carry over to that application.

Ubuntu :: Tried Firefox 3.6 From Daily Repo - Totally Ruined Font Rendering On Entire Sys

Jan 23, 2010

I used the directions from this thread: [url]

Then after installing it, I realized not only did firefoxes fonts look terrible, the fonts on the entire system were totally different, they look terrible.

So I uninstalled all the new programs, removed the new moz repository, and then reinstalled the regular firefox 3.5 from regular ubuntu repos. Dropped all support software down to 3.5 as well. System fonts are still totally fubar!

I tried creating a .fontconfig file with the text from the threads, supposedly to fix the new firefoxes fonts, and it did not help.

As my fonts looked absolutely wonderful, now they look terrible. I tried messing with all the settings in the appearance tab of the gnome menu, nothing seems to help!

Regular firefox is back, and running fine, but its fonts and all the rest of the fonts on the system look horrible, like they are not getting aliased/hinted at all!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: "Nvidia: Direct Rendering Failed, Attempting Indirect Rendering"

Apr 3, 2010

I recently downloaded Frets On Fire and the HRP Polymer pack for Duke3D...Duke3D runs fine with just EDuke32 and no mods, just Duke3D and EDuke32. But when I try the HRP Polymer pack, it says in Terminal "NVIDIA: Direct Rendering failed, attempting indirect rendering." This is fine...if I want the game to lag like hell, I'm sure my video card and the driver for it support DR, the video card is a NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200, the same message appears in terminal when I run Frets On Fire, I think it does with other games too, if someone could explain how to enable Direct Rendering.

Ubuntu :: Change Scroll Speed In Firefox?

Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.6 Speed - Forcing To Refresh The Page ?

May 3, 2010

I am impressed with the visuals of both Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6, but unfortunately I've been experiencing a very annoying issue since my install of 10.04 two days ago.

When I begin a Firefox session (using profile manager, in case it might have any relevance to the issue) it moves at lightning speed for the first five or so pages. Then, if I try a website it will time out (I have tried various pages, so it is not a page-specific issue) forcing me to refresh the page, wait roughly ten seconds, and finally be back on the initial page.

I am too lazy to re-list my PC stats, but they can be found in my signature. I am running on a household network, with the average connection speed ranging from from 40-80%.

The only other Ubuntu release I have used is Jaunty, where Firefox 3.0 (was it really 3.0 back then?) worked perfectly.

I have installed Google Chrome as well, and it seems to have the same relative issue, but it manages to recover from the timeouts quickly.

My only thought is perhaps it is an internal Internet setting that is disturbing the browser(s), potentially a default setting that has been modified since 9.04?

Fedora :: Bad Font Rendering Affects Numerous Applications

May 26, 2011

I just preupgraded from Fedora 14 to 15 on my Toshiba NB205 netbook (the preupgrade went smoothly by the way).

Immediately upon logging in, I discovered catastrophically poor quality of font rendering in every terminal window program I tried, (and I checked plenty like LilyTerm, Sakura, gnome-terminal, etc) and in web-browsers.

The symptoms are the same for all applications: the glyphs are very thin, anorectic, and very ugly.

The described behavior is desktop independent: same in Gnome (3 and the fallback mode), fluxbox, Openbox.

Fedora :: Subpixel Font Rendering For FC13 (Ubuntu Patches)?

May 27, 2010

Tried out the latest Fedora 13 release for kicks, and seem to be liking it so far I'm an openSUSE user and created some RPMs (on openSUSE) for myself which have the Ubuntu font rendering patches in them. I played around with the Fedora RPMs and managed to patch freetype-freeworld, cairo, fontconfig and Xfto achieve subpixel hinting on par with Ubuntu I wanted to share them with the Fedora community, if interested. Is there any place like an openSUSE Build Service for Fedora where I can host them...or maybe some community site that can host them? A screenshot of my desktop:

Mar 1, 2010

There is one little thing annoying me in man pages. When I search for text using '/' command the line where the text is found is positioned at the top of the screen. I find it inconvenient because when I search for text I want to see it in the context which also includes the a couple of lines before the found text.Is there a way to tell the man pager not to scroll the screen all the way to the top during search?

Ubuntu :: How To Improve System Performance

Jun 4, 2011

Basically I'm wondering if there is any way to lighten Gnome and Ubuntu I would like to keep Gnome if possible. I am a pretty experienced linux (or for you hardcore GNU fans GNU/Linux) user having used it for almost 4 years and I just built my Arch system but have found that alot of the functionality that I've come to love about ubuntu isn't in the default Gnome package but that Ubuntu's Gnome is heavily modified so I want to switch back but do to my lack of modern hardware I can't run Ubuntu as smoothly as I want.

Below is my current hardware.
Intel Pentium III 733mhz
512mb of ram
8gb Hard Drive
and a Dvd Drive
Nvidia Geforce 6600 265mb pci gpu
100 watt power supply

I am also a Developer so I know I can compile the Kernel my self and remove some not needed junk and optimize it. But I was wondering are there some Highly intensive processes that don't really need to be running? The only thing I would be using Ubuntu for is Web Browsing, Coding, Gimp, Text Processing and probably Music; thats really all I need I don't do much else besides that.
Basically all I'm trying to do is lighten Ubuntu and Gnome without putting 3 days worth of work into it.

Debian :: Improve Fonts In Squeeze ?

I've installed Squeeze. I saved a .fonts.conf file that helped to improve fonts some. I would like to know what others do to improve fonts. I found the fonts sometimes a little thin. I've heard of compiling freetype with bytecode interpreter enabled. Is this necessary on Squeeze? If this would make an improvement what would I need to do?

Hardware :: Improve 3d Performance Of X800XL?

Jul 9, 2010

I have got a Radeon X800XL built in my computer. I was able to play Quake 4 in high details once, so I guess my PC is quite fast. Anyway, I have trouble playing Anno 1503 and SuperTuxKart (sic!). While Anno 1503 is fairly unplayable, SuperTuxKart has got around 30 to 90 fps, depending on the situation. In my opinion, that's way to less.

My question is: How could I improve the 3d performance, to be able to play such legacy games as Anno 1503? Therefor I'll give you some information about my configuration and what I tried so far.

I run Ubuntu 10.04. That means, the driver provided by AMD/ATI (fglrx) does not work anymore. My Ubuntu is up to date.

I set the kind of graphics card and the graphics ram in the Registry of Wine. Disabling the compiz-fusion-effects does not improve the situation however.

I disabled KMS. That gave an amazing performance boost, but still not enough. I am still experiencing performance troubles like being unable to play Anno 1503, and some others.

I also created a Xorg.conf, trying to tweak some settings, but that does not improve the performance much. The config file is attached below.

How to improve or accelerate the 3d-performance. Maybe there is an beta-driver or some xorg-settings I did not find?
